Following the release of their album ‘Primeval’, British death metallers Venom Prison have now shared a video for one of its tracks, ‘Slayer Of Holofernes’.
This is what the band had to say of the song and its video.
“‘Primeval’ is a collage of different releases that are interwoven with a reinterpretation of religious imagery and criticism. ‘Slayer of Holofernes’ follows that theme. The scene from the book of Judith, follows the protagonist’s character and actions as a challenge to the dominant patriarchal narrative within religious writings.
We wanted to create a connection between this powerful tale and the art that Eliran Kantor has created for ‘Primeval’ through the use of water, depicting Larissa [Stupar, vocals] in an ethereal way and through inflicting pain via various methods of water torture on the male character.”

The band’s new album, ‘Primeval’, is out now through Prosthetic Records.
